Transplant medicine has made thrilling strides, thanks to deeper immunological insights and breakthroughs in immunosuppression. Yet, the challenges of severe immunosuppression

side effects and donor organ shortages persist. Innovatively, transplant engineering proposes a shift from dulling the recipient’s immune system to rendering the donor organ immunologically invisible. This is accomplished by genetically engineering the organ to remove elements that trigger immune rejection, alongside employing transgene techniques to further protect the organ. Exciting pre-clinical studies show that these genetically enhanced organs significantly outlast traditional transplants, effectively sidestepping rejection without compromising the recipient’s immune health. This cutting-edge approach promises to revolutionize transplant outcomes, boost organ availability, and dramatically improve

patients’ lives.
